ELF: I don’t know the names of ELF’s retarded moves so bare with me. On wake up, ELF can slide, belly slam or spin grab you.
Wake up LK RJ will let you escape the belly slam and beat the slide but lose to the spin grab.
Neutral jump will let you escape the spin grab but it will lose to belly slam and slide and make sure you hit grab after you land cause most ELF will try to throw you after the spin grab misses.
That’s about the best I can come up with after 40+ games with this one ELF. You just have to guess to a degree, that’s how that ELF is built.
One more thing, don’t bother using focus on wake up, Adon’s FA cannot hit ELF’s slide.
